The giant squirrel is a skilling pet that can be obtained after completion of an agility course, as well as from ticket dispensers within the Brimhaven Agility Arena. The chances of getting it are dependent on the player’s Agility level, and the agility course the player is training on.
When a player receives the pet, it will automatically try to appear as their follower. At the same time, a red message in the chatbox will state You have a funny feeling like you’re being followed.
However, if a player receives a pet while having a follower out (for example, a cat), it will be placed into their inventory. When this occurs, the message in the chatbox will instead state You feel something weird sneaking into your backpack. If a player’s inventory is full and they have a follower already, the pet will wander until it’s picked up.
On death, if a player loses their pet (as a follower or in their inventory) it will wander around for 30 seconds before disappearing completely.
Players can pay a one-time fee of 500,000 coins to Probita in East Ardougne to have this pet insured. If the pet is lost while insured, it can be reclaimed for 1,000,000 coins.
Shown below are the base chances of receiving the giant squirrel1. The pet chance is rolled after completing an agility course, and when receiving an agility arena ticket within the Brimhaven Agility Arena.
A player’s actual chances of receiving it is 1 in B – (Lvl * 25), where B is the base chance and Lvl is the player’s Agility level.
